We were going to get a OIP from Leeds Building Society this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc).

I have paid off my mortgage with Barclays. I assume I don't need a Ilfracombe conveyancer on the Barclays panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?

If you have finished paying off your Barclays mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Barclays mortgage from the register. Barclays, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Barclays has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Barclays has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Barclays mortgage has been paid off.

I note that there are debates on Chancel Insurance on online forums. Do I require this when acquiring a house in Ilfracombe? or Apparently there is historic law that could mean that house owners residing in a parish church boundary may be liable to pay for maintenance towards the chancel in proximity to the church. Is this relevant for conveyancing in Ilfracombe?

Unless a prior acquisition of the premises took place post 12 October 2013 you could assume that lawyers delivering conveyancing in Ilfracombe to continue to advocate a chancel search and or chancel repair liability insurance.

I'm purchasing my first flat in Ilfracombe benefiting from help to buy. The developers would not reduce the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The sale representative suggested that I not inform my conveyancer about the side-deal as it may affect my loan with Halifax. Should I keep quiet?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and identified one near me in Ilfracombe I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 49 years on the lease. There is not much else in Ilfracombe for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.
